The Upper West Side of Manhattan was the site of anti-Semitic graffiti painted along the sidewalk of Broadway between 102nd and 106th streets.
“This vile act is a sad reminder that we as a community must remain vigilant in the face of an elevated and hateful political climate,” said Council Members Mark Levine and Helen Rosenthal, who represent the Upper West Side. “Intolerance and bigotry have no place in our City and cannot stand. We are grateful to the 24th Precinct for their immediate and effective response. The recent spike in hate crimes against not only Jews, but the Muslim, immigrant and other vulnerable populations is completely deplorable, and people of conscience everywhere should denounce these hateful attacks.”
